'Essex Girl' is a term which is still defined in all dictionaries available in the UK. The term is outdated and derogatory towards women of the English county of Essex. 'Essex Girl' is usually defined as a woman who is promiscuous, brash and materialistic.

It is 2019, it is about time this definition is changed, all it does is encourage inappropriate stereotypes, and discrimination towards women from Essex. 

I have spoken to several dictionary companies across the UK and they are refusing to remove the term as it is still in current use. So if they are refusing to remove the term, let's make them change it!

The Miss Essex Finalists 2019 have decided to start our own campaign together, in the attempt to change the stereotype.
